My Ghoul

My Ghoul

Gravedigger’s daughter, a lovely ghoul,
Newly uprooted from graveyard pool
Teenage zombie, beauty queen,
Sells her daddy for pickled spleen

Hopelessly devoted to rank beau,
Aligned love-bites all in a row.
Never lose heart to a ghoul
She’ll eat it fetidΒ a golden rule

Boneyard dining all the rage,
Cadavers taste best via little age.
Cleaning her teeth with femur bone,
Eagerly awaits passΓ© tombstone.

Marinated with formaldehyde
Preserve drippings lush inside
Gravedigger’s gourmet cherub
Just a warning, don’t sample grub.

Munchin’ ladyfingers, opposable thumbs
Browse plots for ripe little plums
Post on graves a neon plaque,
"I’m not meant for a midnight snack!"

You are really nice...perhaps a bit loopy(like a roller coaster at Six Flags!), but we like you that way.Β 
You know, you're probably a riot at Halloween! I want to trick-or-treat with you, young lady. LOL.Β
